NASA, Houston has a problem
Now that the space shuttle program is ending, no other place in the world deserves a retired shuttle more than Houston, Texas. Put simply, this decision should be a no-brainer.
But Houston has been overlooked. Shuttles are going to Los Angeles, Florida, and Washington. The prototype Enterprise is headed to New York City. "We were tremendously surprised," said Susan Marenoff-Zausner, president of the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York after NASA made the announcement. No kidding.
that ain't right! Houston deserves a shuttle to display. There is indeed a deep-rooted culture of space just ouside of Houston. Capt Sully tried to give New York a 737 anyway, and they had it carted away. No shuttle for them!
